How to combat climate change?

This thesis studies the incentive compatibility of three specific strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in absence of a comprehensive greenhouse gas reduction agreement and to handle the impacts of climate change, respectively.Chapter 2 investigates the incentive compatibility of insurance as an adaptation strategy. However, insurance is not only an adaptation strategy which can reduce the vulnerability of the society to the impacts of climate change, it can also serve as an instrument for incentivizing risk-reducing adaptation. Therefore, we study the interaction between risk-reducing anticipatory adaptation to climate change and insurance against climate change induced losses. More precisely, we show how the availability of different insurance contracts impacts the adaptation decision of risk-averse agents and discuss the consequences adaptation has for the insurer.Chapter 3 analyzes the incentives of developed countries to voluntarily fund adaptation and mitigation in developing countries in a non-cooperative world. Since the costs and benefits of mitigation policies occur over a long period, the discount rate plays an important role. Moreover, there is an asymmetry between discount rates of developed and developing countries. The implications of the discount rate and its asymmetry on adaptation and mitigation funding is the question we focus on in Chapter 3.In Chapter 4, we consider whether voluntary eco-labeling is a suitable instrument to enhance social welfare by reducing emissions without governmental compulsion. Given the voluntary nature of eco-labels, the effectiveness in terms of reducing emissions crucially depends on firms' willingness to participate. Moreover, policy makers must take into account an eco-label's impact on competition between firms. Therefore, we address the following questions in Chapter 4: How must policy makers, who aim at social welfare maximization, set up an eco-labeling standard taking into account the voluntariness of eco-labeling as well as competition? What are the effects of introducing an optimally designed labeling standard on emissions, producer surplus and consumer surplus? Does an optimally designed eco-label automatically lead to a cost-efficient emission reduction when firms dispose of different abatement technologies?

Different assumptions show that discount policies or tendering systems are the optimal governmental intervention to counteract the growth of the health care system expenditures. The main reason for these expectations is the rapid reduction in the costs of pharmaceutical drugs by applying the exclusive supplement concept on the pharmaceutical industry. The same as in the rest of Europe, in Germany there is a high demand to reduce the health care system expenditures, and utilize the scarce resources efficiently. Thus, it is not surprising that the German government has followed the experience of the European countries, and introduced a discount contract policy that is targeting the pharmaceutical industry in the first place. It is simple to say that the policy has achieved a rapid impact on the pharmaceutical expenditures. However, it is difficult to estimate to what extent the policy would influence the general structure of the German health market in the far or even the near future. Therefore, the study aimed to partially evaluate the actual impact of the Discount contract policy on the German health market.

It is widely accepted that the decentralization process exerts negative influence on the supply chain economic performance relatively to the case of an integrated supply chain in terms of total supply chain profit. In other words, a decentralized supply chain is less efficient than a centralized one, as in a decentralized supply chain each separate member tends to maximize his own benefits and pursue his private objectives, even if it harms the system wide performance. Coordination, in turn, helps to mitigate these negative effects of a decentralized decision-making. Nevertheless, coordination may be hard to achieve if some of the supply chain members are competing with each other, which leads to a new line of research on such systems, referred to as supply networks. Supply chain contract can be an effective coordination mechanism to motivate supply network members to be a part of entire system, in order to improve individual and system wide performance. There are different types of contracts, such as revenue-sharing, quantity-discount and other.
